The Compensation Fund: Feinberg's Back

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino have appointed Ken Feinberg to run the One Fund Boston for victims of the Boston marathon bombing.   The Enterprise has an interview with Feinberg as does MSNBC.   Similar to his work in prior compensation funds, Feinberg will be holding town hall meetings with the public (today and tomorrow), and meeting privately with victims.   According to The Enterprise:  

The final protocol and claim forms will be available on the fund’s website by May 15, and people will have a month to register. Feinberg, who has sole authority over the fund, said the money will be distributed to Boston victims by the end of June.

Currently, the One Fund has received a bit over $28 million in donations.  The full story is here
